Rating: ☺☺☺☺

Steps That I Used To Achieve The Results:
1. Cleanse Face Thoroughly
2. Apply Toner and Moisturizer (Wait a a minute or two)
3. Apply one pump of BB Cream to face with hand by blending in it with circular motions
4. Apply a pressed powder foundation to improve blending to skin

Time Spent: < style="font-weight: bold;">Information About The Product:
- Whitening effects
- UV protection (SPF 25)
- Wrinkle improvement
- Made in South Korea
>First off what is BB Cream? BB cream is a substitute for foundations. It is suppose to give you coverage and also do wonders for your skins such as whitening, UV protection, etc.

This is the Hot Pink Label for Oily to Combination Skin, however there is also a Gold Label for Dry to Combination Skin.

I absolutely love this product. Yes, I admit I have been sucked into the BB cream sensation.

I always had problems with my foundations for that I have tried many foundations and I find that some of them were either too cakey, or they didn't have the right shade, or they had an orange tinge to them.

I found my solution with BB cream. I find that this Skin 79 Super + Beblesh Balm did what I wanted it to. It made my face look brighter, it gave me medium coverage, and I didn't have to fuse over my foundation with a foundation brush. I can just apply this BB cream with my fingers simply by blending it in with circular motions.

It comes in one tint for that it will naturally blend and match with your skin colour.

I have problems when I first wake up, I look very pale and very dead really. BB cream helps make me look more energized and it minimizes the look of my sadly large pores, and it evens out my skin tone.

I was kind of weary about it since when I first pumped it, it had a grey tinge to it and it was quite thick. However my worries were gone when I applied it. It blended well with my skin and did what it was suppose it. It has a rosy smell to it so the smell isn't unpleasant. It doesn't feel or look cakey on my face either. It also controls the oil that tends to release throughout the day. All I have to do is apply a pressed powder on afterwards to blend it even more.

I personally have not had any problems with this clogging my pore or anything. One pump of this can cover my whole face. If I don't have time I can just apply this easily and just leave the house without any other makeup.

Overall I love this product and I use it everyday as part of my morning routine. It does it's job. I give it a 5 out of 5 happy faces and I would definitely buy another bottle of this.

Overall Summary:
- 40 g bottle made from South Korea
- BB Cream that provides whitening, UV protection, and reduce wrinkles
- medium coverage
- one tint (blends with skin colour)
- part of my morning routine
- if in a rush can just apply this and leave the house without other makeup
- would definitely continue on using and buy another bottle from

Nailene Nail Studio

*I am not getting paid to write this review or test this product*

Product: Nailene Nail Studio Chip Proof Medium Length
Price: $4.97 CAN @ Walmart
Rating: ☺☺☺☺☻

Steps That I Used To Achieve the Results:
1. Remove all past nail polish
2. Cut and buff nails
3. Apply Nailene Profession Pink Glue To Artificial Nail
4. Apply and Press Artificial Nail for 5 seconds

Time Spent: 15~ 20 minutes

The kit comes with 24 nails and a buffer/ nail filer. The glue is not included and you need to purchase it separately.

I am actually quite impressed with these artificial nails. I was kind of weary about purchasing these because of past experience with artificial nails that were not pleasant at all. I needed to get my nails done for my part time job as a model and I didn't want to spend a lot of money to get them professionally done.

They look very natural on and they are really easy to apply. My make- up artist actually thought I got them professionally done.

I find that in some other brands the nails are cut awkwardly and the edges of the nail aren't straight however, I didn't find this problem with these ones.

These nails have a non chip formula where the white tip will not chip, I haven't worn them enough to respond to that however I will respond to it after a week.

The only thing I would have to say is probably when you are applying the nail make sure your press the nail on evenly so later when it dries you are not able to see the glue marks. Other than that you can barely see the marks unless you look really carefully.

Another thing is beware if you have really small fingers because the size of the nails might be too big. I actually had to file one of the nails so then I could fit it on my index finger. *Remember to place all the nails that you are going to apply beforehand and see if the nails fit on your own.

It might be hard to manoeuvrer in them for the first few days especially when you don't usually wear artificial nails often because the length is actually quite long but you get used to it.

I give it 4 out 5 because I will definitely go back and by another set when this set falls off. Maybe this time however I will by the short length because the medium length is actually quite long. For this price and quality I will definitely go and by another pair.

Summary: -
The kit comes with 24 nails and a buffer/ nail filer
- The glue is not included and you need to purchase it separately at around $2 CAN
- Natural on and very easy to apply
- 4 out of 5 and definitely would go back to by it only in a shorter length

After One Week Trial:
I am really satisfied with the nails. There was a time when a nail fell off while I was at work however, I did glue it back on and it stayed. =) After a week I removed them because the medium length was a little bothersome for me so I switched to the short length and I am very satisfied with them. The short length is much more easier to manoeuvrer in.

SOMETHING TO REMEMBER: Push back your cuticles before you apply the nails =)
